The Business Studies Major provides a comprehensive foundation of business knowledge through carefully selected business units designed to equip students with knowledge in Accounting, Economics, Applied Finance, Management and International Business. As such this major is very highly regarded in the business world and opens up a very large range of career prospects in general business, finance and the public sector.

Note: The Business component of this program will be offered at the Bankstown, Campbeltown and Parramatta City campuses. Students may be required to travel between campuses in order to complete this course.


Students in the Secondary Teaching Major will study units that deal with educational concepts such as sustainability, creativity, Australia-Asia relationships, outdoor education, neuroscience and languages. These units are broadly structured for students to investigate and critique contemporary education issues. Students are also provided with the opportunity to study subject content units in either Modern History, Geography and Urban Studies or Mathematics, dependent on their interests. This major together with a Business major articulates with a Master of Teaching postgraduate qualification in Secondary Teaching and leads to opportunities for employment across Australia as well as internationally.

Note: The Secondary Teaching components are generally offered at Parramatta South, Bankstown and Kingswood campuses as well as online. Students may be required to travel between campuses in order to complete this course.
